About Historic Westwood

 

Historic Westwood was built in East Tennessee as a “wedding promise” in 1890 by John Edwin Lutz and his wife, Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz. Originally sited on 12 acres along Kingston Pike, it was designed by notable architects Baumann Brothers in the grand Richardsonian Romanesque style so popular in the late 19th century. Westwood is one of Knoxville’s treasured vintage houses known as “The Three Sisters,” which also includes Crescent Bend and Bleak House. Adelia Lutz was the first professional female artist not only in Knoxville, but in all of Tennessee. The house is filled with her beautiful hand-painted decorative frescos.  This venue is one of Knoxville’s most romantic wedding locations.  The elegant location even features a heart-shaped drive that has welcomed generations of happy couples who celebrated their ceremonies at this one-of-a-kind vintage mansion wedding venue. You can become a part of this wedding tradition when you welcome your family and friends to celebrate your love at Historic Westwood. Mickey Mallonee, our Director of Events, can guide you through planning all aspects of your wedding. From your engagement party to throwing your bouquet, Historic Westwood will provide the perfect wedding ceremony venue for memories that will last a lifetime.
